How to replace fire bulb for Dimplex HTN20
I wanted an answer to this too. It was hard to find, but here we go.
Get hold of a torch, and look closely at the decorative surround at the bottom of the fire. There are two screws hidden in there, on each side! See below:
Unscrew these, and you can take the front off, and get at the bulbs.
For information, the fire takes two screw in bulbs, described as 240V – 60W E14 SES Clear Candle Lamps
Hope this helps.

Tried turning on my electric fireplace after
Hi Shirley-- Maybe your question to us was cut short-- all it said was: Tried turning on my electric fireplace
after about and it wouldn't do anything"-- so we need to know 'after about what...?' Tell us more-- so we can help more-- Has the heater been dropped?- or jarred badly?-- Is the connecting cord solidn and unbroken?- Is the receptacle OK-- can you plus something else into it, and test to see if the receptacle is powered now?

No Heat or fan on model DS4411 Or 6901050100
I had the same problem. One or more of the switches for the stove have melted and broken. You need to call Dimplex and request new switches. They should ship you out a 3 pack for free, and the pack will come with easy instructions for removing the bottom panel and replacing the switches.

Change bulb on dimplex fire
If it's a fireplace that sets inside a free standing cabinet mantle, you access the bulbs by removing the glass on the front (actually, it''s plexiglass). Then remove the logs and the glowing ember bed (It lifts out). Now you can see and have access to the bulbs to change them.
It it's wood stove look-a-like unit, you can access the bulbs by removing the rectangular panel on the back, near the bottom of the of the unit. Removal of that panel gives you access to the bulbs.
Hope this helps to answer your question.

The bulb was out so
Well, Shirley, you have quite a mystery here. I suspect that the flame affect circuit may have cut out. Turn the Master ON/OFF switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 12 to 15 minutes. Doing this will give he unit a chance to reset itself. If that doesn't solve your problem contact Dimplex USA, Technical Service 888-346-7539 for further advice.

The "flame" on my unit
The circuitry that controls the flickering flames may have gone bad. Or a wiring connections to the bulb harness may be loose. In some cases it's just hard to know because these electric fireplace/ heaters aren't intended to last a long time. I'm not throwing stones at just Dimplex. That's the case with 98% of the manufacturers. We stopped selling electric fireplaces 4 or 5 years ago, just for that reason. Just to many callbacks on them, after as little as a year..
I think too, that most people who have them don't thoroughly read their Owners Manual and provide the routine maintenance that's required. And, I'm not saying that's the case with you. But, I wish I had a dollar for every questioner I have provided a possible solution for.
If you still have your Owners Manual try to trace the circuitry and trace the wiring for the light bulbs. You may find the answer there.
Hope I've been of some help to you.
